Batman: Under The Red Hood And Green Arrow Next DC Animated Movies
I'm a huge fan of both the Marvel and DC animated movies that have been released over the last few years and Green Lantern: First Flight has been my own personal highlight so far.
The next straight to DVD release is Justice League: Crisis of Two Earths (which I can't wait for) but after that DC and Warner Home Video will be releasing Batman: Under the Red Hood based on the Judd Winick written 2005 comic storyline. Red Hood, who turns out to be... Well that would ruin it for the people who don't know, is another vigilante who doesn't mind cleaning up Gotham by leaving dead bodies in his wake. Animated guru Bruce Timm exec produces this pretty violent look into crime on the streets, and it's directed by "Superman Doomsday" co-director Brandon Vietti, with a cavalcade of stars as voice talent. It all starts with Bruce Greenwood ("Star Trek") as Batman, then continues with "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles as Red Hood, Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother") as Nightwing, John DiMaggio ("Futurama") as the Joker and Jason Isaacs (the Harry Potter films) as Ra's Al Ghul.
After Red Hood DC will be looking to start production on a Green Arrow animated movie (probably due to the delay on the Supermax Green Arrow movie, and due to the success of the character both in the Justice League: Unlimited cartoon and on Smallville) and should feature at least Black Canary as a cameo, which is enough to look forward to in itself!
